Guacamole is not the only way to eat one of nature’s richest foods! Here’s over 50 Paleo friendly avocado recipes sure to please the entire family.
But first: Why You Should Eat Avocados
Avocados are one of the best foods you can eat. Avocados are mainly (about 77%) fat, and most of that is very healthy monosaturated fats or ‘good fats’. Monosaturated fats assist good heart health and help to lower blood pressure. The monounsaturated fats found in avocados can also help to reverse insulin resistance which can lead to the development of type 2 diabetes. Avocados provide clean-burning energy to fuel your body.
As well as heart & brain healthy fats, avocados are rich in the following vitamins and minerals: Vitamin K1, Vitamin B9 (Folate), Vitamin C, Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid), Potassium, Vitamin B6, Vitamin E, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Copper, Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Magnesium, and Manganese.
Avocados are also an excellent source of fiber. In fact, avocados contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. They help to reduce cholesterol levels by preventing re-absorption, help to maintain healthy bowel function and avocados can assist the body to avoid blood sugar spikes. Avocados contain the same antioxidants (carotenoids) that make bright red and orange vegetables so healthy.
